    What is your Alignment?

    Hi,
    So I was pondering the world in the shower, as is standard procedure, and I started thinking about alignments (DnD style) and how they could actually be used in the real world. I thought about my own alignment, and after a little bit of reading up I have concluded that in a DnD world, I would be...

    Lawful Neutral

    I would consider myself this, what with being very adherent to the laws and rules set by me - I have no problem following authority unless I thoroughly object, to which I would voice my opinion. Then I would say that I am Neutral due to me being helpful when asked, but I don't often go out of my way for others unless I deeply care for them. Acting against rules and to hurt others are not in my character.

    So my question is this: What is your alignment?

    [If you're unfamiliar with DnD alignments then this wikipedia article contains the basic information: CLICKY]
    No no, it's meant to be spelled like that.

    Neutral Evil, all the way. In games, in life, everything.

    Neutral Evil but in games I've lately been more like Lawful Good (Paladin), whenever possible.

    In real life I'm neutral good. But in games I enjoy playing on the evil side. Or rather on the side opposing an overly zealous good.

    I like to see myself as Chaotic Good. Because, as this guide describes, I strive to have a "good heart and a free spirit". (I think my personality type, INFJ, lends itself to that alignment. Empathetic day-dreamers.)

    When I'm in 'mod-mode', though, I attempt to remain True/Lawful Neutral.

    Something between Lawful Good and Chaotic Good. More Chaotic Good though.

    Chaotic good.

    I just hate authority. I hate being restricted and told what to do, not that im a terrible person, its just I believe in freedom. For example, why should a law that was made before I was born, be of any relevance to me? I was never able to protest it or argue my case... because I didn't exist. Sure you can argue that without that law I may not exist, but that's a shit argument.

    Its only rational to be like this, because I am no ones property, nor are they in charge of me. I never voted for this person who made a law to restrict my personal life.

    Neutral good in real life, in games it can vary to even chaotic good or chaotic neutral

    Don't know what to say, Neutral good fits us INFJ characters as well in a way. We keep to the law but when we need to use our freedom above the law to do good, we do it.

    Chaotic neutral.

    Generally I don't give a damn, unless I do. ;]

    Ah! Well met, fellow uncommoner! That's a good point. I suppose that covers that repulsion to conflict that so many INFJs are supposed to hold as well, avoiding ruffling feathers unnecessarily if there is a more diplomatic, stable solution to a problem (which doesn't come with a price of suffering, of course). I think my disdain for the authoritarian supersedes that though. I'm too much of an Orwell/Hitchensite.

    I voted Neutral Good, because I tend to sway either way, but just slightly more towards the good side, abide by the laws/regulations/rules, help people out, etc.., but I also have no problem breaking the law such as jay walking, or speeding if I deem it convenient.

    Ha ha, "pondering the world". That's a cute name for it. ^.~

    I've thought about this a lot myself since I stumbled onto the DND alignment system (yes, I'm weird). I have a lot of the qualities described under Neutral Good and Chaotic Neutral, but the thing which always struck me was the description of True Neutral about a druid that helps fight a community of gnolls — then turns on their allies when the gnolls are facing extinction.

    I feel like that True Neutral druid. I always want to help the underdog. At first, I'll gang up with everyone else against some rude or arrogant person in a social situation (for example). But if it gets too lopsided, and the person is just getting pwnd mercilessly, I'll suddenly start sticking up for them and trying to look for their good qualities.

    At the same time, all other things held equal, I prefer to at least try to do "good" things like help people. I'd prefer to do something nice over something selfish or evil. But I tend to do it in a very independent, strong-willed, personal way and I have little respect for authority. I think the existence of authority is a good thing for the general wellbeing of others, but I have no hesitation about opposing any authority I feel is abused or inappropriate, even if doing so endangers my wellbeing.

    So... um... yeah, I'm not sure where I'm going with this and I never know where I really fall on the chart.

    Wow. That's...discouraging. I had spent time writing a well thought out response to what I considered to be a really fun thread, and my login timed out. I thought I had copied everything before I had to log in again, but I didn't. It was only a small portion of it. That was a lot of wasted effort and time lost...

    I had elements of Lawful/Good, Neutral/Good, and Chaotic/Good. Don't really fell like typing it all out again.

    Dear MMO Champ, is there a reason why it auto logs you out after like 5 min? That is a huge nuisance. Anyways OP, good thread idea...

    I'm the boring lawful good.

    Some interesting responses, some that even make me question my own decision :O. And after reading Baiyn's post, I've now discovered a new world of personality types! What is this madness...
